- Wedding: October 2014
Soo they boy and I after all the drama this past couple weeks, went looking at rings today online since i had an unexpected night off! and now….(after re-trying on the diamond and sapphire ring i thought i didnt want anymore, i tried it on last week with out a stone, and really liked it all over again, and the look on my SOs face when he had me try it on again, quickly melted away any irrational or selfish thoughts i had about it not being me, because it soo us….cheesy i know…i just know how much he loves it….and how i want to wear my grandmas band with it….and the meaning it has, after taking a solid week break from looking at rings, i went back to it, and i loved it as much as the first time i saw it….) soo anyways, we are now re-visiting that option, and have tried looking at different stones, and realized what took away from it was the marquise stone on my hand, i just dont have the hands for it (i tried on a few marquise solitaires, and i just idk felt weird and not me….very beautiful, but after having it sit on my hand it just wasnt right….
sooo….today i think i know what i want….final decision time this time….is the setting i originally wanted with a small pear…similair size to a gemstone one i tried on….we have an appointment to try on pear diamonds that he is bringing in for a few gals to look at……imreally interested in a smaller one, the one i tried was a .75 carat and was awhole lot of diamond for me, soooo tomorrow i get to go look at some smaller ones and assess how much it would cost to set them in my setting that i want, (since we noted there were a few differences in the two….)
sooo here is what i think i want: we will know for sure tomorrow!
the stone we are tentatively looking at online if we dont find one better is: 0.3 carat
H colored, SI1, very good cut, no fluorescence or cutlet, depth 62.6, table 58%, excellent polish, excellent symmetry, slightly thick-thick girdle, length/width ratio: 1.5, eye clean, no noteable bow tie effect…..
pretty stocked, esp after looking at the stats name brand stores sell of diamonds, for waaaaayyy inflated prices…..love blue nile…. and it will be pared with my grandmas white gold wedding band if we get it….
sooo do any of you ladies have any smaller size pears??? or what the hey, lets see some pear love of all shapes sizes and colors!! 🙂
